Roasted Salmon with Almond and Olive Tepanade

20120414-112338.jpg

Olives and salmon are a wonderful match. This simple, fast, bright-tasting topping can be thrown together quickly. Here, the salmon is baked but it could just as easily be pan roasted or grilled. And the topping is good with other fish, such as halibut.

2 Tbl. olive oil
1/2 c. sliced almonds
1/2 c. Panko bread crumbs
1 tsp. thyme leaves, chopped
1 tsp. lemon rind, finely chopped
2 tsp. green or black olives, chopped
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, pin bones removed

Preheat oven to 400*. Heat olive oil in a small sauté pan and sauté the sliced almonds until lightly toasted. Remove from heat and stir in bread crumbs, thyme, lemon rind and olives.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place salmon skin-side down in the pan. Lightly press 1/4 of the bread crumb mixture on the top surface of each salmon fillet.

Bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Enjoy!

Salmon Burgers with Grilled Pineapple

20120406-104928.jpg

Lately we’ve been working on using up our left over salmon in our freezer to make room for this summers fresh catch. We’ve been preparing a lot of colorful meals that not only play with your taste buds, but also with your eyes. This dish is no different! We had some extra ingredients lying around and decided to whip up salmon burgers to snack on. Well, one thing lead to another and we ended up with this gorgeous plate of salmon, lettuce, tomato and grilled pineapple – all bathed in some soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, sesame oil and ginger. It’s fun to get creative with our ingredients, and this turned out to be a really easy Salmon Burger with Grilled Pineapple to put together.

Just grab a bag of tortilla chips and you’ve got a delicious, fun and healthful treat!

1/4 c. soy sauce
2 Tbl. brown sugar
1 Tbl. lemon juice

2 Tbl. green onions, chopped
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbl. fresh ginger, minced
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
4 – 8 thick pineapple rings
4 Kaiser or soft hamburger buns, split
